    Anyone ever ordered from Hardwareking.net? I think they're based in Germany but it seems they only accept payment through Money Order/Cheque.

    They have the cheapest 1090t I can find :p

    Haha I don't know man... seems a bit dodgy to me, you'd think they'd at least take card? or Paypal?

    Yea and it seems I've made an order but there's no way to pay at the checkout; they've sent me an invoice and everything :roll: Time to hope I'm not under obligation!!

    How you doing man?

    Just filed a support ticket with seagate about my recently replaced Spinpoint F1 that sounds like a rampantrabbit on steroids when plugged in. Hopefully they will reply and agree to exchange it for something that I can at least sell on ebay for a half decent price compared to this samsung

    Who would want to buy a hard drive that sounds like a rampantrabbit when you plug it in??

    so fingers crossed.

    well. Hats off to Seagate, They already got back to me.

    Unforunately their RMA system doesnt quite recognise SAMSUNG serial/partnumbers yet so I cant get an RMA which means the information the rep gave me was totally useless as i cant even get to the stage where i locate a seagate service/repair center here in the UK

    /facepalm

    Yea fantastic cheers, just trying to get my mates system running properly lol I'm giving BF3 a hammering too when I got time

    Question to all: I'm trying to get hold of a used 1090t - what sort of price should I be looking at? Not willing to wait for one shipped abroad so I'm just checking out prices on the UK market.

    I've just noticed that on steam, 91% of GPU's are now DX10+, really puts into perspective how few PC gamers are using DX9 cards at the moment

    Steam also makes a good point about Apple's anti Adobe Flash thing they are doing, they may think it's a good idea, but if 97% of people have decided to install it on their PC's, wouldn't that same 97% want it on their phone?

    If you set up the 'Dolby Digital Live' then you can have actual Surround sound through the optical output, as opposed to the normal 2 channel PCM a PC outputs through an optical port

    I'm looking for a second hd 5770 or even a cheap hd 5750 for some crossfire action. Anyone seen any good deals anywhere on either?

    How much was it?

    @Cheesy-Adobe Flash can go fuck itself but until most sites stop using it your better off with a powerful android phone to run flash. Same with Javascript, it can go fuck itself.

    £55.88 for a new HD 5750 any good? I don't know what the shop is like but they get decent ratings in the reviews.
